...I’ve long warned that there is a Jeb 2012 bandwagon geared up and ready to roll at a moment’s notice, if Jeb decides to take a shot at it. If that doesn’t happen, the Bushies are trying to keep their thumb on the scale, to make sure that whoever gets the 2012 nomination, it’s someone acceptable to them.
But the Bushies know that, whatever else happens, it’s all over for them if Sarah Palin gets the 2012 nomination. Establishment phonies like Nicolle Wallace will be persona non grata to a Palin-led Republican Party.
Just keep that in mind. There’s a lot more going on behind the scenes of the GOP than most grassroots conservatives suspect.
Well, that's interesting; add Jeb to the list which includes Palin, Daniels, Pawlenty, Gingrich, Pence (sorta), Huckabee, Romney, and at least two players to be named later.
Blood's thick, folks. I don't think a 3rd Bush is the answer.
Meantime, VodkaPundit's been ruminating on the same question--without a Bush in the graf:
So we’re left with Mitch Daniels, Bobby Jindal, Tim Pawlenty, Chris Christie, and Bob McConnell.
Dunno about Christie. Jindal has to learn how to give speech, not wonkery. Pawlenty is plumped by the PowerLine gang, but squishes a lot. McConnell's unknown.
